Who doesn’t love the feeling of stepping in from that all-too-familiar Nantucket winter blast to the cozy warmth of home? Unfortunately, keeping our homes warm all winter comes with a price: higher energy consumption. This is especially true for those who live in Nantucket’s older homes that are prone to air leaks or lack proper insulation, leading many residents to sacrifice their winter comfort to save on heating bills.

Luckily, National Grid offers weatherization improvements to help you—and your home—combat those cold winter months. Simple air sealing and insulation measures can help you save up to 16% on heating and cooling. And it’s easy to get started with upgrades through National Grid’s no-cost home energy assessment program.

An Energy Specialist will locate air leaks around your windows and doors, as well as less obvious spots like electric outlets and recessed lights. From there, recommendations will be given to help make heating costs more affordable and your home much more comfortable—no matter what winter blows your way.
